Scoring Types

There are 3 different types of scoring:


Weighted Scoring scheme is the default and will let you add a weight to your score. A weight is a way of adding value to a practical answer. For example, in the Checklist-[Yes/No] scoring scheme, the Yes answer has a weight of 10, and the No has a weight of 0. This is because Yes is seen as a positive answer and No is a negative, though of course this may not always be the case. The benefit of a weighted scheme is that it can have Percentage and Absolute Grading as well as Rules Based.


Single Scoring scheme is scoring without the weights, which means that only Rules Based grading is available on this scheme. However, this is very useful when it comes to creating a selection instead of a score. For example, if I have a requirement which asks what city I am from.  The answers are neither negative nor positive, so there’s no need for them to have a weight.


Multi Scoring scheme is where, when conducting the Audit, the user is able to select multiple answers on the one requirement. Like the single scheme, these are not weighted so the only grading type available is Rules Based.
